Tadej Pogacar snatched victory on stage 5. Adam Yates declared the overall winner as the final stages of the tour were cancelled – due to two positive tests for Corona virus from staff of one of the teams. We wish everyone safe and on travelling home to loved ones soon.
Aaaaand the sprint victory goes to Dylan Groenewegen and Jumbo-Visma!
This classic Tour de France dress rehearsal was a largely sodden, slow burner, only coming alight on the weekend’s short, sharp mountain stages after a mid-way time-trial had exposed the GC contenders. Astana’s Jakob Fuglsang seized the leader’s jersey with a late attack on stage 7, which he easily retained on the final stage, despite a handful of riders being within a minute of him. The podium was rounded out by runner-up Tejay van Garderen (EF Education First) and third-placed Emanuel Buchmann (BORA-hansgrohe) who both survived the weather-related culling of GC contenders.
